A PLANNING application has been submitted for an affordable housing development aimed at elderly people in Govan.
CCG (Scotland) Ltd has submitted proposals to Glasgow City Council for 47 amenity flats on the corner of Langlands Road and Golspie Street, on a parking area beside Govan Cross Shopping Centre.
A mix of 31 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom dwellings is proposed, with five ground-floor units capable of being adapted for wheelchair users.
The development would have two blocks connected by a communal amenity deck on the first-floor. There would be parking for up to 15 vehicles.
CCG director Calum Murray said: “The supply of affordable, energy-efficient homes that are capable of supporting Scotland’s ageing population is becoming more important by the day.
“A site like Langlands, which has been led entirely by CCG’s in-house Developments team, with its immediate access to amenities and transport links, strikes a perfect blend of place-making and housing designed for particular needs.
“Govan is an area that CCG know well and we are confident that the proposals designed by MAST will contribute greatly to the local community.”
MAST Architects director Mark Johnstone said: “Langlands will provide much-needed warm and healthy homes whilst also helping to redefine a fragmented piece of local townscape.
“The addition of high-quality communal space in the form of the amenity deck is also a vital component in creating a modern design for the urban environment.
“MAST are delighted to be working with CCG to bring forward this prominent site, continuing our 40-year involvement in the provision of high-quality homes in the Govan area.”
Depending on planning approval, it’s hoped construction would start in 2022.
